Colorado Records More Than 100 Powder Days

Good day,

According to Colorado Ski Country USA, its 26 member resorts had snow a total of 141 days. The trade group also says there were 105 powder days, meaning at least one resort got more than five inches of new snow.  Beaver Creek, with 430 inches of snow, was among eight Colorado ski resorts that set records this season.  Crested Butte got its fair share with just over 420 inches.

Other record breakers, according to Colorado Ski Country USA:

• Aspen/Snowmass: 450 inches

Crested Butte: 422 inches

• Monarch Mountain: 482 inches

• Powderhorn: 320 inches

• Silverton: 550 inches (and counting)

• Steamboat: 489 inches

• Telluride: 353 inches

Vail had its third snowiest winter on record, Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort saw its fifth snowiest winter and both Copper Mountain’s and Sunlight Mountain Resort’s snowfall totals landed in the top 10 in the resorts’ histories.

Keystone tied its best snowfall in the previous eight years, and Eldora received its best snow year in the previous five years.

If you want to ski, Colorado is it!
